The upcoming election presents us with the choice of remaining a capitalistic society that gave us the best country to ever exist or increase our country’s march to socialism.

In every election cycle, we hear baseless claims of voter fraud along with very real stories about voter intimidation and suppression. With this election, the Trump campaign is actively recruiting an army of supposed poll watchers whose actual purpose is to keep Biden supporters from exercis…

Margaret Young’s Oct. 21 letter (FCPS should stay the course until vaccine ready) got it more than right: There is no way to keep kids safe — especially the younger ones — in a classroom at this point. Same goes for their teachers and anyone they come near.

I am a lifelong Republican and conservative. I first became eligible to vote on Nov. 3, 1964, and I proudly cast my ballot for the late, great Barry Goldwater. I have voted in every presidential and congressional election since then. Not once have I voted for a Democrat for president, the U.…

Please note that I use the title president out of respect for the office, not for you, as you have shown no respect for the office. Here we are a week from Election Day and you are acting like a dictator, not a president. Surely, with even your dangerously little knowledge of the world, you …

We are writing to urge readers to cast their votes on Nov. 3 for David Bass as a member of the Frederick County Board of Education. We are a former FCPS teacher and a former school district administrator, and we have an understanding about what ought to be considered in the selection of a sc…

Non-partisan elections have been a tradition in Brunswick for decades. There’s good reasons for that: The decisions made by the mayor and council are community decisions: parking, zoning, water and sewer and so on. They are not based on Democratic or Republican Party ideologies. Also, the pe…

My wife and I were invited to a meeting at Catoctin High School regarding our daughter’s upcoming trip to France with her French class. We were sending our daughter across the Atlantic and entrusting her safety and well-being to her French instructor, Dr. Lois Jarman.

As a senior last year, I lost many opportunities, and as a freshman in college, I am missing out even more. Even though I attend Robert Morris University, about 20 minutes outside of Pittsburgh, I have stayed involved and up to date on what is happening back home.

Some people might say this means I don’t care about life or about the vulnerable, but quite the opposite is true. I believe that abortion is not the only life issue on the ballot; and, indeed, it may already be moot. With the nomination and all-but-assured confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett t…

I was a JFK Democrat for most of my adult life, i.e. "ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” The Democratic Party has totally abandoned this concept. It now stands for, “Give everyone what they want so they will be dependent upon Big Government.”

My wife and I had the pleasure of watching Peter Souza’s photo-documentary “The Way I See It” over the weekend. Mr. Souza was official White House photographer during the Reagan and Obama administrations.

For all parents and teachers concerned with the present level of education being offered virtually, and the fact that our Frederick County Board of Education has voted down (4 to 3) for a return of students to school, I urge you to vote for Sue Johnson and write-in candidate Paulette Anders …

A cartoon in the opinion section of the Ocean City Sentinel, Ocean City, NJ, printed on Sept. 2, expresses my thoughts very clearly about students returning to the classroom before a vaccine is available.

In a recent edition of The Frederick News-Post there appeared a letter titled "Response to letter about ‘spiritual war.'" In this response, Mr. George Smith seems to imply that President Trump’s accomplishments are really failures.

I believe the forthcoming election will be the most debated one of all time. I have noticed America always seems to swing back and forth every four to eight years, from one political stance to another, and the boat keeps rocking.

I am responding to the message on the front page Thursday regarding the 50+ parents wanting their children to return to school. Being a grandparent with three grandchildren schooling virtually, I completely understand what a disruption this has made in the lives of families. I have one stayi…

During this crucial time in our community, and in our country, it’s important now more than ever to be involved in our children’s education. As a father of two, like many parents, I recognize the importance of in-school learning. I also recognize the changes that need to be made by the board…

A recent letter writer asked “where is the leadership” with the current administration? I ask, where is the leadership coming from the Democrat Party? The writer claimed President Trump downplayed the current pandemic, when actually, it was the World Health Organization and China that downpl…

How does the Honorable Amy Coney Barrett see herself? A women’s rights advocate? A judicial conservative? A constitutionalist? A champion of mothers and families? An example for other woman (and men) aspiring to the serve the country? A political pawn?

As the working parent of a kindergarten student in Frederick County, I'm disappointed by the Board of Education's decision to reject a hybrid learning model for the county's youngest students. I believe our kindergarten students need to have some in-person instruction instead of the fully vi…

So if my choice for president is between a bellicose businessman who is pro-worker, pro-America, pro-life, pro-law enforcement, and pro-peace, and a doddering corrupt career politician who has been wrong on every issue — both domestic and foreign — for decades, and is now simply a trojan hor…

I don’t have a death wish, but I’m always interested in new experiences, so being a census taker or “enumerator” in Census Bureau parlance sounded interesting and appealed to my sense of civic duty. And sure, the $21 an hour plus mileage didn’t hurt. About 240,000 of my fellow U.S. citizens …

I’m answering the letter (Where’s the list of Biden’s accomplishments?, Oct. 7) with the list from Wikipedia just in case you don’t have easy internet access, in contrast to a mere veiled hostility toward anyone who gets things done in office.

On March 13, three plainclothes police officers entered a private residence just before 1 a.m. and shot and killed 26-year-old Breonna Taylor. Ms. Taylor’s boyfriend believed they were being robbed, so he called the police to report a crime. He also used his registered handgun to shoot at th…

A recent letter to the editor (The integrity of our government, Oct. 1) presented an overly simplistic and inaccurate portrait of both the role and the motivation of the Frederick County Forestry Board and the Maryland Forest Service. The letter characterized both as being motivated by greed…

I was moved to respond to the letter to the editor (Protesters wrong to harass diners, Oct. 3) complaining about the protesters harassing people last Friday night in downtown Frederick. The writer asked: “What are we going to do about this?”
